I Prayed have prayed
Father, we have seen wicked people targeting soldiers on U.S. military bases in recent years. Please put a hedge of protection around every military base, keep our troops from harm, and avert any plots of the Enemy.
Reading Time: 4 minutes

I felt led today to invite you to pray with me for the safety of our military bases. In recent days, we have seen multiple incidents of terrorist attacks against U.S. military bases. Even when the attack was performed by a lone shooter, lives have been lost. If the Enemy has any repeat performances planned, I believe the Lord will use our prayers to avert disaster and keep those wicked plans from coming to fruition.

Post a prayer for your state!


Without further ado, would you join me in praying for the safety of our American military bases today?

Let’s pray as follows:

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to You in Jesus’ name.

You are the Lord of hosts — the God of angel armies. You are the Commander of the hosts of Heaven, and Your forces are indomitable. Nothing can harm You or destroy Your army. Thank You; we praise You for that.

Lord, because You are the original military genius and strategist, You know how important safety and security are for our troops. You desire to keep them safe, for Your word says that no evil will befall those who dwell in You, nor shall any plague come near their dwelling. Thank You.

Father, we first ask that our troops would meet the conditions You have laid out in Psalm 91:

  • that they would dwell in the secret place of the Most High;
  • that they would abide under the shadow of the Almighty, accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, one and all;
  • and that they would say of You that You are their refuge and fortress; their God, in Whom they trust.

But Father, even if they do not yet know You, we ask also that You would hear our prayers and cries of intercession on their behalf, and that You would afford them these protections for our sakes.

In the mighty name of Jesus, we ask today that You would put up a hedge of protection around every American military base at home and abroad.

  • Do not allow any evil thing to approach our bases.
  • If anyone has evil intentions on base — or even approaching the base — then expose and reveal the dark plots.
  • Avert and destroy every trick, plot, plan, and conspiracy of the Enemy.
  • Sharpen the senses of every U.S. soldier, sailor, and airman.
  • Give every military person Your gift of discernment of spirits, so that they can smell it if any demons or other evil things come against them — long before the attack even tries to manifest.
  • If someone has seen or heard something suspicious that needs to be reported, put it in their spirit to report it to the powers that be — and give them no peace until they do.
  • Give base commanders and leaders the wisdom for what to do and how to act upon every potential threat.
  • Make a way for every right-acting U.S. military person to have appropriate weapons and armament when they need it, even on base, in order to defend themselves if needed.
  • Give security personnel extreme wisdom for what to notice and what not to care about. Highlight in their vision, in their senses, and in their spirit anything that could bring harm to our military bases or personnel.
  • If defense becomes necessary, help every military person to defend himself or herself appropriately.
  • Let there be no lives lost or even any injuries sustained by our troops who are loyal to America.

Father, if any person on a U.S. military base is compromised towards the Enemy — whether towards an enemy nation or towards our enemy Satan — then expose that and bring them to justice.

Let Your justice be swift and Your actions sure. Work through the justice system if You need to, but work supernaturally through Your angel armies and Your own mighty hand as well.

Father, we call on You as the God of angel armies, and we pray:

  • that You would encamp around those who fear You, and deliver them;
  • that because we fear You, You would encamp around our military bases, even if only for our sakes;
  • that You send angels to watch over every base. Let them link arms around each base and allow no evil to pass through;
  • and let Your angels do warfare on our behalf, fighting for us and defending us in Your strength and in the power of Your might.

Abba Father, no matter who plots evil against the U.S. and our military, we thank You that “those who are with us are more than those who are with them” (2 Kings 6:16 NKJV). We thank You that Your horses and chariots of fire are all around us. And we thank You that Your mercy and protection are upon us and upon our military in response to our prayers.

Thank You, Father. Thank You, Lord Jesus and blessed Holy Spirit. We love You, and we give You all the praise. In Jesus’ mighty and precious name we pray, amen.

Lord please place a hedge of your protection around every military base stationed worldwide. This world is turning more evil daily and we need your protection more than ever 🙏! Amen

Yes, Jamie! I wholeheartedly agree with your insightful prayer. I especially appreciate you noting that there are prerequisites for Psa. 91 protection, but that we can cry out for those who do not meet them, for our sake and our safety.

Lord Jesus,
The prayers of a righteous man availeth much.
Thank you for this all-encompassing prayer from Jamie.
I pray for the families of our service people, that you would calm their fears as they kneel in prayer before You and help their little ones to feel secure in the love that You have for them. I pray for extra provision for each and every family Lord GOD. And may we always take the opportunity to thank them for their service. In Jesus Name, Amen.

According to Matthew 18:19 if 2 of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.. vs 18 – whatever you bind on earth is bound in heaven. Whatever is loosed on earth is loosed in heaven. We loose Your angels to be working in Your behalf for continuing to protect, lead and guide all military personnel covered by Your blood

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, watch over our service folks on land, sea and sky. Protect them as they serve our country throughout the world. Be with their families as they experience this service for our country. These Americans are our heroes.

Dear Lord,
I pray that the Commander In Chief fulfills his oath of office to FULLY protect and support our troops. The he and the military leaders will respond proportionally to take out those who initiate acts of violence and war against America’s Peace Keeping troops.
In Jesus’ holy name,

I live near Shaw AFB. God had told me earlier this week to blow the Shofar near the base. I will do so today!
Father, I agree with this mighty prayer. We thank You for Your great mercy and tender loving care. We continue to “anchor” our nation, pray for protection, and wait upon You as You bring about the discipline and correction our nation needs. All glory to Your Name. Amen.

Thank you Jamie for being sensitive to Holy Spirit’s leading and uplifting our military personnel in protective prayer. I prayed each bullet point you posted and am in full agreement.
1 John 4:4- “greater is He that is in us, then he that is in this world.”

Please remember and pray for our soldiers that are guarding our embassies all over the world. They are susceptible to enemy attacks also.

    Thank you for reminding us. Yes, indeed!

    Our Father GOD,
    Thank you that Your eye is on the sparrow.
    We ask You, Our Father, to bless the administration with wisdom and capability so that no US Embassy would be left without adequate protection.
    We remember the dire attack on the Benghazi Embassy, and we pray dear LORD GOD that you would appoint extra warring angels to each of the embassies so that our service people would be safe. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    Excellent reminder, Brenda! We incorporated them into our prayers for our soldiers, and even added our soldiers wherever they may be – ships, deployed personnel, etc.
